Football betting on Sunday includes a matchup of two teams seeing their seasons slipping away.
The Seahawks come into the game at 1-5 while the 49ers are 2-5 according to pro football betting information. The 49ers are favored in NFL Week 8 odds but the only reason gamblers are considering them in this matchup is because the Seahawks are terrible.
Football betting information tells us that this is the first game for new head coach Mike Singletary. Pro football betting information had former head coach Mike Nolan getting fired on Monday. How will the 49ers react against the Seahawks in Singletary’s first game? Many times a team will play hard in their first game for a new head coach and that could be the case here with the 49ers. Most football betting experts consider the 49ers a huge disappointment. And it is not just this season either. More has been expected out of San Francisco and perhaps a new head coach will be the answer.
Seattle has a ton of problems in head coach Mike Holmgren’s last season. Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is hurt and is not expected to play against San Francisco according to football betting information. The defense has been weak and overall there are few positives about Seattle according to football betting experts. With all of that bad news though, they did cover last week getting big points in football betting against Tampa Bay. They also have done well in this series against San Francisco according to football betting numbers. The Seahawks have won seven of the last 10 meetings according to pro football betting stats. They covered six of those games according to football betting numbers. One bad number for Seattle in football betting comes when they are on the road getting points. They have failed to cover more than 60% of the time since 2005 in that situation according to pro football betting stats.
There is not much to go on with the total in this football betting matchup. The Seahawks have normally been an over team on the road in recent seasons but without Hasselbeck you can throw out those football betting numbers.
